Lamar Odom’s condition is deteriorating and his prognosis worsening as he lays unconscious in a Las Vegas hospital on Thursday.

As Gossip Cop reported, Odom was found unresponsive in a Nevada brothel on Tuesday. On Wednesday it was reportedly that he likely overdosed on drugs, specifically cocaine and sexual performance enhancers. After his hospitalization, however, he suffered several strokes, further complicating matters.

But despite reports of “improvement,” Odom has not woken up and his body is deteriorating as he remains on life support. The NBA star is breathing with the help of a respirator, but his organs are shutting down, and he has been receiving dialysis for kidney failure. And while it was reported that Odom seemingly squeezed estranged wife Khloe Kardashian’s hand, such movements by coma patients are often involuntary.

Doctors currently believe that the longer Odom remains in his coma, the more his prognosis worsens, as the odds of a meaningful recovery, or any recovery, lessen. The latest news comes after Gossip Cop separated fact from fiction and corrected earlier claims from Rev. Jesse Jackson, who had told the media that Odom was doing better. Sadly, that is not true.

Kardashian and other family members have been informed of the athlete’s condition, and remain by his bedside. As Gossip Cop reported, Kardashian paid for Odom’s children, as well as their mother and his father, to fly to Las Vegas on Wednesday. Both sides continue to keep vigil. Gossip Cop will have updates.
